(delete-region p1 p2) ; thou shalt not (mess with the) kill (ring)

Also consider:

     - Function: delete-and-extract-region start end
    
         This function deletes the text between positions START and
         END in the current buffer, and returns a string containing
         the text just deleted.
    
         If point was inside the deleted region, its value afterward
         is START. Otherwise, point relocates with the surrounding
         text, as markers do.
